Assessment of Module Goals
Unit 5: Societal Implications of Climate Change: Executive Summary Report is the summative assessment for the module. In it, students analyze a variety of data that are relevant to basin-scale water budget. The assessment culminates in students writing a synthesis report for water policy makers. Refer to Unit 5 for details on that primary component of the summative assessment.
The summative assessment is designed to assess the overarching module goals:
1. Analyze geodetic data to assess ice sheet changes and the causes of observed sea level, and will make predictions of future sea level rise.
2. Assess the societal and economic consequences of observed and projected sea level changes on regions most vulnerable to sea level rise.
